Lots of Sw people do not like the canister filter for SW tanks as said mostly because of it ending up as a Nitrate trap, harder or rather more work to clean. I have only had HOB's on 37G and smaller tanks.

I just transferred my cichlids to my 125 gallon tank from my 55 gallon tank and I just cleaned everything with warm water and changed the media and everything in my 55 gallon tank about a month or so ago and everything in my saltwater is doing good
